How long does it take to move to Portugal?

Since Portugal joined the European Union in 1986, it has increasingly become a country of immigration, with immigrants coming mainly from Africa (Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau), South America (Brazil) and Eastern Europe (Ukraine, Russia and Moldova). Otherwise, Portugal is a very homogeneous country in linguistic and ethnic terms. Portuguese is spoken throughout the country, except in a few villages. The largest ethnic minority is made up of 40,000 to 50,000 Roma.

Together with Galician in north-west Spain, it goes back to a common language of origin,Portugal is considered one of the most beautiful countries in the world, not least because of its fantastic beaches and coastline in the Algarve. But it has a lot more to offer. Portugal also includes the archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira.

Founded in the 12th century, the Kingdom of Portugal rose to become a great power in the 15th century and played an essential role in the Age of Discoveries. The kingdom created one of the largest colonial empires with possessions in Africa, Asia and South America, but its decline was already heralded in the course of the 17th century.
A founding member of NATO (1949) and the OECD (1948), Portugal is also a member of the United Nations (since 1955), the Council of Europe (since 1976) and the Schengen Agreement (since 1991). For a long time, Portugal was a country of emigration; important centres of Portuguese culture in the diaspora now exist in France and the USA (where about 1 to 2 million Portuguese live in each country). With 17 million tourists per year, Portugal is one of the most visited countries in the world, the most common destinations being the Algarve and the region around the capital Lisbon. The north of Portugal has a relatively cool and humid climate. In the northwest lies the Minho, one of the most densely populated areas of the country, with the two largest cities being Braga and Viana do CasteloBecause of its climate and comparatively lush vegetation, this region is known as the green garden of Portugal. On the slopes of the numerous river valleys, wine is mainly cultivated.
Form of government: Portugal is a unitary republic. The name Portugal comes from the port built by the Roman Empire, Porto, Latin Portus Cale (Latin portus means "port"). Portugal is bordered to the west and south by the Atlantic Ocean, and to the east and north by its border with Spain. The latter is 1214 km long. The north of Portugal has a relatively cool and humid climate and consists of two traditional provinces or landscapes: Minho in the northwest is one of the most densely populated areas of the country.
Central Portugal is largely hilly to mountainous and has a considerable mountain range, the Serra da Estrela, with winter sports facilities. The highest mountain is the Torre at 1993 m. The south of Portugal is made up of the three landscapes Terras do Sado, Alentejo and Algarve. The surface of the entire region is flat to hilly and has a dry and hot climate. The Alentejo, the former granary of Portugal, is now sparsely populated and characterised by emigrationThe Algarve marks the entire southern coast of the country and has become a popular holiday destination with its pretty towns, cliffs and sandy beaches, bringing with it usual concomitants such as mass tourism.
